Advice on the Best Things Before Sliced Bread
What were the best things before sliced bread?
- This Is How I Roll
Before Jesus announced to his disciples that the roll of bread at the table was his body and broke it, something else had to be the best. So let's uncover what life was like Before Christ (literally).
We know from basic Bible School knowledge that stoning was a popular method of punishing people for breaking various laws. So believe it or not, getting stoned was not as great as people make it out to be today (you know what I mean). So not getting stoned was one example of something better than sliced bread. In ancient times when cuneiform was the fashionable way to write, we can infer that having more than one farm animal was better than sliced bread, as livestock could feed families for a consistent amount of time and provide a means of income.
Of course, the lifespan of the average person was much lower as well. You'd be lucky if you made it past childbirth. Ultimately, I think surviving past the womb was the best thing before sliced bread.
